Journalist Grant Wahl died suddenly from the heart issue while covering the World Cup. Here's what to know.
"This continues to be a very difficult and painful time as we grieve a beloved husband, brother, and friend," Dr. Céline Gounder said in a statement.
A senior State Department official says Wahl's body and possessions have been repatriated after his death last week covering the World Cup in Qatar.
"Godspeed, my friend," tweeted reporter Guillem Balague. "If I get asked what journalism is, I'll say your name."
The former Sports Illustrated writer and fierce critic of Qatari rulers died during a match after reportedly feeling unwell.
